PostSubject: Scorpion that cohabitate with Ants   12/29/2014, 11:10 am

Hey all,

I was talking to an ant keeping friend of mine who was in new mexico for a little whil. He saw a species of scorpion living with an Aphenogaster species native to the area. He mentioned that they are commonly know to cohabitate with Pogonomyrmex species. So it was a surprise. He said they are no bigger than 2 cm. Im curious if anyone has heard of this species of scorpion and knows what species it is, or anyone that has them.

Thank you for any help,
baphomet

I've just had a quick google and found this http://antsbeesbutterfliesnature.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/arizona-desert-aphaenogaster.html

It doesn't state what species of scorpion was found at the burrow but it looks like some kind of Vaejovidae. Not much help because there are so many in this family that look very similar.

Maybe smokehound can help. He seems to do a grand job at ID'ing North American species.
